Aluminum foil tape is a type of adhesive tape that uses a thin layer of aluminum foil as its backing material. The tapes is commonly used in construction and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems to seal joints and seams, as well as to insulate pipes and ductwork. Advantages of Aluminum foil tape including:
1. UL 723 rated and meets International Building Code standards
UL 723 is a test to measure the surface burning properties of building materials. To meet the International Building Code’s definition of fire-resistant, a composite material must have a flame spread rating no higher than 50. DeYou Tape’s foil tapes are UL723 certified, which is worth noting because not all cloth-backed duct tapes or foil tapes are UL 723 rated.
2. Extreme cold and heat temperature versatility
The cold-temperature aluminum tape can be used to protect metal-backed insulation. This type of tape is also useful for sealing joints and seams in fiberglass and aluminum-backed duct board. DeYou tape’s all-weather aluminum foil tape is coated with a superior performance flame-retardant solvent acrylic adhesive, working equally well in extreme hot and cold weather conditions.
3. Wide application
Aluminium foil tape has many uses including sealing ducts for heating, air conditioning and refrigeration, vapour barrier, sealing and masking of aircraft, masking in powder coating applications.
4. High Durability and Versatility
Foil tapes are manufactured using superior materials for its outstanding adhesion and cohesion as well as its thermal properties. It is also highly flexible and can even be used in uneven surfaces – making it a great option for harnesses, wires and exhaust pipes. Foil tapes are also easy to apply – sticking almost instantly. The same goes when peeling it.
5.Good aging resistance and longevity
Aluminum foil tapes also have high mechanical strength, aging resistance, and they perform very well under UV light. They have high durability and longevity compared to most tapes.
